Word Up

Hello all. Just shooting in to  clarify a few messages we’ve been receiving from you amazing guys. Yes, I’ve been a bit quiet here lately. Masters is proving to be quite a handful but there’s heaps of new stuff we’re keen on getting up here and sharing with you, just might be a bit longer than what we’re used too.

Thanks for the kind words and for checking in on us. I’m not dead!

The Tree House provides the playful focal point for the fully immersive Lemur exhibit experience. It functions as the necessary ‘airlock’ providing a staged exit for visitors leaving the aviary where Lemurs and visitors share the same space. Contrasting with the preceding experience of complete immersion, it provides a sheltered and contained space with elevated, curated views over the exhibit. The Tree House design is a collection of similar geometric ‘pods’, nestled together so that no two pods are the same.

japanese designer kota mizuishi of mizuishi architect atelier has completed ‘house in kitakarasuyama’, a dwelling that occupies a relatively small corner plot in a residential neighborhood of tokyo. the challenge presented to the architect was to develop a scheme that enabled seclusion and privacy while opening up the home to the immediate environment.
Architects: Hugh Strange Architects Location: Somerset, UK Year: 2014The new building shell is constructed of a single layer of solid wood without insulation, external cladding or internal lining. The Cross-Laminated Timber panels range from 300mm to 420mm in thickness and simultaneously provide insulation and thermal mass, creating a stable internal environment for the archive in terms of its temperature and relative humidity. The simple timber forms sit on a rough in-situ cast concrete base and are protected by a profiled cement roof similar to those of the surrounding barns. The vented space between the timber and the roof cladding prevents overheating during hot summer months. In contrast to the engineered Spruce construction, the buildings are fit-out with hardwood floor ‘mats’ using timber felled from the surrounding woodlands and dried in the neighbouring wood store. Rough-sawn Cedar floorboards to the office and smooth-sanded and oiled Ash and Beech to the archive distinguish the different characters of the spaces.
